Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that on Saturday I cried in front of a bunch of people because I was talking about the loss of our beloved Little Bit. It wasn’t the tears that make me thankful, it was the precious time we had with her. Not tears of joy, but thankfulness that we were lucky to share her life.

I’m thankful for our safe journeys to and from our destinations. We see so many accidents and are so very careful when we drive. There seems to be so much anger with some folks while they are driving.

I’m thankful that hubby and I made it though our law enforcement careers without much fanfare. We can’t imagine working in that field today with all the abuse and hatred shown to law enforcement by so many. It’s okay to be a thug, but not okay to protect and serve. I just don’t get that.

I’m thankful for living in a place where there is more good weather than bad. We have a couple months of winter and then spring is back and we start over with the good weather. Fall has some really great weather as does our spring.

I’m thankful that hubby and I enjoy so many like interests. Some marriages seem that both are not on the same page, but not even in the same book. That’s not the case with us.

What are you thankful for today?

    I am very glad my dad is a retired police officer. My oldest is wanting to major in criminal justice when he goes off to school, and that makes me nervous. It's a different world than when my dad was working.
    Little Bit certainly brought you lots of joy. I'm glad you had that time with her.
    I'd say, "enjoy your nice weather," but I have no doubt you will. πŸ™‚

    I am thankful that my wife and I have our health. Recently we have seen several families receive the news that one of their members has an advanced stage of cancer and that time is limited. We have been blessed with good health for now and we do not take that lightly.
    I know how you feel about losing a pet. One of the reasons we don't have a pet is because we don't believe the next one would ever be as good as the last one. Have a blessed week-end.

    Hubby and you are made for each other.
    My son has shifted from IL Huntley to CA- Santiago recently. I am sure he will also enjoy his weather-friendly seasons henceforth.
    Have a great Thursday!

    I'm thankful for just getting up every day and going to bed every night. I'm also thankful for the wife that God gave me. I give thanks for the beautiful woman that she is and she still with me.

    Have a beautiful Thursday Sandee & Zane. See ya.

    I am thankful for my wonderful husband. I'm thankful for our good health, our happiness and serenity in our lives together. We truly are best friends and we recognize how lucky we are! I am also thankful for all of our good friends and family. I simply cannot complain! And last but not least- we are thankful for our sweet and loveable Lucy!

    I'm always grateful for the continued health of me and my family. Today I'm especially grateful that my new two orchids are still alive. One whole day. As a recovering plant serial killer that's a big deal.

    I'm thankful that Gibbs is not any bigger than he is. Otherwise when he sits on my desk while I'm trying to read blogs I would never see the screen πŸ™‚

    Today I'm thankful for a dear friend's upcoming visit to her childhood home (my friend from Linden). She doesn't have much time left on this earth. They have a reunion party planned for her. Talking to her today was a treasure and I look forward to hearing about her visit when she gets back.

    I am also thankful for the respect I have for law enforcement. Like you, I don't understand current attitudes. Glad you two tired before it got hairy. Hugs!

    What a wonderful list of things to be thankful for. I especially loved your sentiments on having interests in common with Zane (ditto with my hubby) and crying happy tears about sharing time with your Little Bit (we've been fortunate to have had wonderful pets who brought us joy too).

    Police get such a bad rap it is sickening. Yes some are a bit abrupt, rude and bullies, might be because they do not deal with nice people most of the day.

  12. mail4rosey says:

    I agree that it's so odd police are deemed the bad guys sometimes. Seems like a lot of things are getting backwards in society. Makes me shake my head and wonder how it can even happen and be considered okay.

  13. Ken n Cheryl says:

    So sorry for your loss of Lil Bit!

    It's sad the extra & unnecessary risks that law enforcement have to take today. Thank you & your hubby for your service!

    I'm also thankful to have a husband that shares my interests .. and hoping that I'll be able to be thankful for "safe passages" in our future. Spring is almost here .. very thankful for that!
